PROBATION AND PAROLEPlease visit this page for the latest news on the crisis in corrections.
Media report of weapons charges against offender on Probation clearly evidences that there are offenders on probation that jeopardize public safety and that Corrections hasn’t a system to monitor offenders in the community. Union asserts the necessity for the the creation of a ‘Community Corrections Compliance Unit.’
The Probation & Parole system in Ontario is broken and Offenders know it, referring to it “as a joke.” As evidenced by the media report above where 2 offenders under Probation Supervision were caught by police with a loaded shotgun, drugs and a stolen vehicle, Public Safety is at significant risk on account of Probation & Parole Offenders not being supervised in our communities. When will the Gov’t create a ‘Community Corrections Compliance Unit?’
